Just a short time ago, we noted that Butch Davis had hoped to be considered as a serious candidate for the opening at USF.
As it turns out, Davis’ hope turned into a false one as multiple media outlets are reporting that Willie Taggart has been named as the program’s new head football coach. Taggart will leave Western Kentucky and replace Skip Holtz, fired earlier this month after three years on the job.
While neither school has confirmed the move, numerous Hilltopper players tweeted the news following a meeting with what appears to be their now-former head coach.
An announcement from USF concerning the Taggart hiring is expected at some point this weekend.
Taggart has spent the past three seasons at WKU, leading the Hilltoppers to their first-ever bowl appearance this season.
